Atta Way To Blow 9/11 Panel's Credibility

By Mark Steyn - August 14, 2005 - Chicago Sun-Times

How'd that happen? Well, as Felzenberg [9/11 Commission official spokesman] says so disarmingly, "this information [that Atta was in the U.S. earlier than INS records indicated] was not meshing with the other information.'' As a glimpse into the mindset of the commission, that's astonishing. Sept. 11 happened, in part, because the various federal bureaucracies involved were unable to process information that didn't "mesh" with conventional wisdom. Now we find that the official commission intended to identify those problems and ensure they don't recur is, in fact, guilty of the very same fatal flaw. The new information didn't "mesh" with the old information, so they disregarded it.

At least one primary reason that the commission seemed more intent on covering up the systemic failure of 9/11 than getting to the bottom of it is that Jamie Gorelick, Hilary Clinton's personal choice for Attorney General and the main architect of the "wall" that so exacerbated the systemic failure, was a key player on the commission investigating what kind of job she did.

How could we possibly allow such a blatant conflict of intetest? At what point will we acknowledge the "9/11 Commission" was a political farce? The Republican appointees on the commission were duped. Eveyone was so busy trying to avoid pointing fingers that we let people with a conflict of interest sabotage the investigation. This "best selling" report is only usefull as an example of an incredible political con job.
